Photo Friday: Tiny Religious Medallions

Much of my collection of personal and family history items have been sizable. These medallions are very small. About as big as my thumb. They were a symbol of attainment in the religious programs of my youth. Thankfully, a camera’s macro setting and zoom can enable me to photograph such tiny objects. f/5, exp 1/25, […]

However, she had a quite faith that was present as evident by these tiny trinkets in her life long possession. f/5, exp 1/160, […]

In Canada, the census records list someone’s religion, so you would have a good idea where to search for records. In the US, we don’t have that luxury. So, I […]

I also don’t know if the competitions were limited only to kids in the Gift and Talented Program. What I do know, is that I participated in Match competitions in Elementary and Middle […]

Photo Friday: Bon Jovi T-Shirt

Super cool album that I owed as a young girl. I know, I know. I am a genealogist and I’m showcasing my concert T-Shirts. What? Shouldn’t this all be about more ‘historical’ stuff? Well, no. My personal history is the history for my children and grandchildren. And, the things I like will matter to them, […]

Photo Friday: Brand Names

I know that many of you are going to or have begun shopping for next year’s gift giving holidays. I wanted to play up the commercialism of the holiday season. Next month, we’ll focus on the religious side of things. So, what brand names were important to you or your relatives? f/4.5, exp 1.5, bias […]
